Baby Talking Tattletail is an electronic toy made by Waygetter Electronics. The toy is very similar to the popular Furby, due to being a electronic pet. It is the second toy in the Tattletail line.
Baby Talking Tattletail was created by Waygetter Electronics in 1998. It was made to be a replacement toy to the banned first toy in the toy line, Mama Tattletail. After Mama Tattletail was recalled and banned, Waygetter Electronics starting coming up with ideas for an alternative immediately. The creator of Mama Tattletail, Thomas Waygetter, noticed that virtual pet toys were getting more popular than read along toys like Teddy Ruxpin. He decided that the next toy in the Tattletail line should be a Furby-like toy called Baby Talking Tattletail. The toy was known under this name until 2004 when it was renamed Educational Baby Talking Tattletail, and was given an extra feature. The toy originally came in Purple, Blue, and Yellow, but they released in Black, White, Green, Red, and Orange later. Baby Talking Tattletail was being made and sold until 2009, when they lost popularity.
